    Spring-calving herd

    Bulls should have a breeding soundness evaluation (BSE) well before the breeding season. They should also receive their annual booster vaccinations and be dewormed.

    Continue supplying a high magnesium mineral until daytime temperatures are consistently above 60 degrees F.

    Improve or maintain body condition (BCS 5) of cows before breeding season starts, if necessary.

  • Now is the time for young people and their parents to begin making plans for an annual summer ritual, 4-H Camp.

    4-H camps are open to all Kentucky youth between the ages of 9 and 14. At 4-H Camp, young people learn independence and responsibility, have a lot of fun and make new friends.

  • Over the course our lives, our financial needs change. Marriage, growing a family, divorce, retirement, and widowhood present women with new financial circumstances. Despite making great strides, women typically earn less than men and work fewer years as a result of leaving the workplace to raise children or care for elderly parents. As a result, women often have contributed less to retirement savings accounts and Social Security compared to men. Therefore, women need to be proactive in managing their finances and preparing for future life events.
